How Ginger Nut Deliver
The new Multi-channel Marketer Level 3 programme will launch on the 11th of December 2023. This standard offers an updated approach to marketing apprenticeships. If your business distributes messages across multiple channels, platforms and other types of digital media to reach and engage with customers, you are already doing multi-channel marketing.
The Ginger Nut training model involves blended one-to-one sessions every 4 weeks, with group sessions, webinars, online courses, video, and additional support as required. This means that our learners have the guidance they need as well as the flexibility to learn around the requirements of their jobs. We find that this approach reduces disruption for the learners and their line managers giving everyone the best chance of benefitting from the training and completing the course.
This course enables our marketing apprentices to learn about a variety of different aspects of marketing (both digital and offline) from marketing strategy and channel selection to marketing budgets and campaign analysis. To support learning, all learners are given access to LinkedIn Learning, including bespoke channels designed to support their apprenticeship and Perlego, which includes full searchable access to hundreds of thousands of textbooks to support study.

How does Multi-channel Marketer compare with Digital Marketer?
Multi-Channel Marketer: This covers a broader spectrum of marketing skills, including data analysis, customer journey mapping, automation, and digital and traditional marketing. It prepares apprentices to be adaptable marketing professionals in the ever-evolving marketing industry.
Digital Marketer: This primarily focused on core digital marketing skills and did not offer the same level of versatility as the Multi-Channel Marketer programme.
Project Activity and Portfolio Building
Each learner will need to put together a portfolio as part of the apprenticeship, which enables them to demonstrate competence across a variety of marketing knowledge, skills and behaviours.
Gateway and End Point Assessment
The end point assessment (EPA) requires the apprentice to submit their Portfolio at the Gateway Meeting, which is then used during the EPA Interview to ensure specific knowledge, skills and behaviours have been demonstrated.
Prior to sitting the interview, apprentices must complete a work-based Project which allows the apprentice to demonstrate competence for a real-world marketing campaign. The Project ensures the apprentice demonstrates several key skills which could include conducting market research, demonstrating the use of marketing tools and analysing data.
Apprentices are then required to deliver a Presentation to their independent end point assessor, who will assess the presentation and ask any relevant follow-up questions. Full support and guidance will be provided, including the opportunity to complete mock interviews and presentations ahead of completing the formal EPA assessments.
